THE ACADEMY by DHI trained a record number of clients in 2014

More than 5,500 people worldwide registered for and attended THE ACADEMY by DHI’s courses and training packages in 2014. In addition, over 1,500 people participated in a large number of User Group Meetings, workshops and seminars held the same year.

Compared to 2013, this is an increase of 13% in the number of registered trainees and the largest recorded attendance ever. THE ACADEMY delivered close to 600 training courses, including on-the-job training, as part of projects, courses given at universities and public enrollment courses. The curriculum ranged from thematic and capacity development packages across our areas of expertise to hands-on training in the use of specific software tools and solution platforms. 

‘The success can to a great extent be explained by our high-level trainers and our focus on delivering high-quality content designed to fit our clients’ needs and specific challenges,’ says Henriette Tamasauskas, Vice President, THE ACADEMY by DHI.

‘The course was like a door that opened my mind and thoughts to the many possibilities that the MIKE software is able to do. I can’t wait to use what I have learned.’

‘I am so happy to have attended this course since there was no prior knowledge on Oil Spill Modelling and it became very necessary when our country Trinidad experienced its effects.’

‘The trainer did an excellent job.  He went through the examples at a pace that made it possible to keep up with him. He certainly showed the depth of knowledge that he needed to deal with explaining the program and answering our questions.  That was probably the best training session of its kind that I have encountered’.
